Force / Summer

force_logo_large

SCYSA's Force program fields teams that participate in highly-competitive softball tournaments during the summer. Force provides a great opportunity for young girls and women in the 8U, 10U, 12U, 14U, 16U, and 18U divisions who love softball and would like to extend their skills beyond the spring season.

While the Spring season emphasizes player development and having fun in a recreational league, the Force Program focuses on fielding more highly competitive teams while maintaining a balance with softball skill development, personal development and having fun.

SCYSA Summer Force Program Overview

Force 2

The Force program for San Carlos Youth Softball is designed to field teams to participate in competitive USA and/or AST softball tournaments throughout the summer season, which typically runs from late May through late July/early August. The summer program involves traveling to cities throughout the Bay Area (and beyond) and competing in our host tournament, the Jan Macpherson Tournament over the Memorial Day weekend. Highly competitive and successful teams have the privilege of representing their league and city in the USA Softball Regional Championships.

As with all SCYSA programs, the Force program focuses on developing both softball and life skills for the young women of our league. Particular emphasis is placed on sportsmanship and fair play through pursuing victory with honor. Success is measured not only with on-field results but in the lasting impression that our coaches and players make on each other and the other cities in which we compete, resulting in the continued participation of our players in SCYSA.
